I've been tinkering behind the scenes here at Boosterrific.com recently. Some of the changes you may have already noticed. I've revised styling on comments forms, created a contact page, and added some color to the mobile landing page.
I also took a look at the database to check on some dates. You won't be surprised to learn that it's been a long time since we've seen Booster Gold in a DC Universe comic.
Depending on how you want to count it:
It's been 44 days since Booster appeared in a few panels in Injustice 2 #5 (July 5, 2017).
It's been 142 days since his questionably continuity appearance in Booster Gold/The Flintstones #1 (March 29, 2017).
It's been 303 days since his one-panel background cameo in Green Lanterns #9 (October 19, 2016).
It's been 716 days (1 year, 11 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days) since his last significant part in Bat-Mite #4 (September 2, 2015)!
The guys at my Local Comic Shop don't even recognize me anymore! At this point, I should be happy to see Mr. Oz revealed as Booster just so that I can see my hero back in action.

From his early days as a solo hero with limited knowledge of the present to membership in the greatest comedy duo on the Justice League roster to his modern role as protector of the time stream, Booster Gold has had a varied career as a costumed crime fighter.
Few of his adventures have been as epic as the story revealed in the pages of 52, a story that included his own death.
It was on this date in 2006 that we first met the corpse of Michael Jon "Booster" Carter in 52 #15. (Don't worry. He got better.)
I loved 52. As a long-time Booster Gold fan, it was great top see him return to the forefront of the DC Universe, especially in a story so dedicated to legacy building. Booster's featured role in that story catapulted the hero to new heights of stardom, and all his fans should be thankful that our hero ever received such a platform regardless of how he's ignored by the company today.

Stone Arch Books has just released a new series of illustrated children's books based on the Justice League Unlimited franchise. If you ask me, these $5.95 books are worth the price for the covers alone.
(I admit it. I'm a sucker for Starro.)
But that's not the best part. The best part is that each book includes a "roll call" of Justice Leaguers. Guess who's on that list? That's right! It's everybody's favorite dynamic duo, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle!
The illustrations for the books were done by Tim Levins (who you may remember for illustrating 2012's The Man of Gold). Levins has been posting his drawings of the individual Leaguers on DeviantArt.com so you can see just how good his Booster Gold looks. Check it out:
Now that's Boosterrific!
You can find all four books in the series (Amazo and the Planetary Reboot, Darkseid and the Fires of Apokolips, Injustice Gang and the Deadly Nightshade, and Starro and the Cyberspore) at your Local Comic Shop and fine booksellers everywhere. And, of course, Amazon.com.
